Google decided to return the automatic application reports to Play Market

Google announced its intention to return the "data security" section to Play Market, which is formed automatically by the platform and lists the privileges available to applications. Previously, the company wanted to take the matter back to the developers themselves.

This decision was taken by the company in response to the public's opinion — by removing the automatically emerging section, users were prevented from checking the facts by comparing the data from two sources. Google's decision was reported on Twitter, promising that the old section would return in the foreseeable future, but that the description that the developers made would remain.

The "data security" section announced last May appeared in Play Market in April of this year, a company that began to disclose this information after Apple. Developers were ordered to report on what user data were collected and what happened to them later: whether they were transmitted to third parties, whether they were stored in encrypted form, and whether it was possible to request their deletion. Google acknowledged that this information was owned only by the developer himself, but promised to take action if the report provided to them was not reliable.
